I’ve recently joined the wonderful world of StumbleUpon in order to provide followers out there with more than just a cup of joe to start or end your day. Let’s me just say this about StumbleUpon: FASCINATING.
It’s a labyrinth of internet fascination. You are given an extensive “Interests” list to check off what may “interest” you (i.e. cooking, traveling, books, nightlife, etc.) Once you’ve checked off a few you are immediately taken to your first random site. You can thumbs down or thumbs up the site (very similar to the life-changing “like” button on Facebook) and the site will register your likes and dislikes and reconfigure your next random sites to it. The “Stumble” button is your click to the next possible site and your next grand moment of inspiration. I think that’s what I really love about the whole concept: driven curiosity.
And this is where I arrived today: Cakes in a Jar.
Innovation at its most delectable.
*Any batter can do whether it be homemade from scratch or “homemade” from the box. Here are the main instructions concerning placing the batter into a mason jar for it’s final creative presentation:
“Divide batter into mason jars and fill them up 1/2 way. Place mason jars onto a baking sheet and put into oven on the middle shelf. **Here is where is gets a little tricky** Check on the cakes in a jar every 7-10 minutes to see when they are done. Depending on the size of the jars you used the cakes can take anywhere from 10 – 25 minutes. You’ll know when they are done by inserting a knife into the center of the cake and if it comes out clean. Remove the cakes in a jar from the oven and let cook.” ( http://whatsgabycooking.com/cakes-in-a-jar/)
